This event takes place separately in late November or early December. Members of the Henderson Police Department and Vance County Sheriffs office work with Vance County Social Services to host a Shop With A Cop event.
Families are chosen by the Vance County Social Services, attend a pizza party with local law enforcement officers, and receive guidance for the upcoming program. Children are then taken to local businesses for Shop With A Cop where each family is mentored by local officers with choosing gifts for the holiday season. It is important to note, the kid’s we’ve seen go through the program are not greedy, they also get gifts for their family members as well.
